A primary school painting sold for 34 M euros

Barnett-Newman.-Onement-VI-1953

A few days ago Onement VI by Barnett Newman was sold for 34M euros. A dark blue plane paint with a straight, light blue line across. According to JotDown (aka. hipsters’ new magazine), this master-piece is an unique expression of ART that none of us could ever, ever imagine. Copy, at most. “It’s all about pushing the art’s limits” it says. Once again the art scene seems to be in a free, reinless falling. The value and the price have not met for decades, a fact that has led us into a ridiculous and pointless situation in which “talent” has lost its meaning. Come back down to Earth, Art.
